Since Noah’s success in round 4, Noah and his team have not rested on their laurels, significant time has been spent looking at the kart telemetry data and previous on board video footage in the pursuit of chasing down those lap times.
This effort proved successful as Noah went out in qualifying and smashed his previous lap record by over 6 tenths of a second! This was using identical equipment to that used in Round 4 putting him P2 on the grid.
Unfortunately lady luck was not on Noah’s side this weekend after being controversially pushed off the track in Turn 1 of the first heat damaging the steering arm. Fortunately heat 2 proved a little less eventful and Noah secured P3 for the final despite competing against more powerful competitor engines.
The final saw Noah again struggle off the line dropping to 5th by turn 1 however an opportunistic late braking manoeuvre saw Noah seize 4rd place going into turn 3. Unfortunately someone then ran into the back of him causing him to spin and drop to last place. Showing true grit and determination Noah valiantly fought his way back from the rear of the pack to claim his 5th consecutive podium finish of the season, leaving the rest of the pack trailing some 11 seconds behind.
Noah’s ability to recover from the collision and deliver an outstandingly mature drive still leaves him only 2 points off the top of the Championship standings.
